Midcentury Solid Oak Pew



This fantastic mid-century, open-ended pew is constructed of solid oak boards stained in a rich brown color, highlighting the beautiful grain patterns of the wood. An inclined open back and seat is fastened to thick tapered supports. Under the seat, 2 book racks are present, leaving the backs free of accessory. Initially, these were part of a much longer pew, but were cut down to make more manageable. As a result, one end of each pew is raw and unfinished, while the opposing end is finished. The finished end is simple and flat, so the other end just needs sanding, stain and clearcoat. When in place, the pews were bolted to the floor. Without this, the pews are unstable, so modification is necessary to make them freestanding. Please see items EOAKP2 for the benches that we have refurbished. Those have bases and do not need to be bolted down. These pews are in good condition. The width of each varies between 77"-78". Salvaged from the circa 1964 Church of the Resurrection in Alexandria, Virginia, this pew and other items from this church are featured on Season 10, Episode 4, of the DIY Network show, "Salvage Dawgs". Weight: 95 lbs. Item Measurements: 78(L) x 20(W) x 33.25(H), Seat Height: 17.25"
